At Caesars Palace, Your Throne Awaits You

This post is part of our Escapes Editor’s Picks series, where LivingSocial travel expert Nick Stafford talks about great destinations to travel and tour.

When you stay at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, you are not a mere guest – you are the one wearing the golden laurel crown yourself! You float above the cheerful mobs, on your own private cloud of lavish comfort. Where fine marble bathrooms and Italian bed linens await you in your emperor-sized bedroom, where the Roman baths (spas may be a more familiar term) with saunas and cascading waterfalls are just steps away, and where private passageways lead you to the gardens and pools.

This award-wining hotel offers an unmatched level of luxury. What’s more, all that luxury is just a stone’s throw away from one of the best restaurants in Vegas — the very French Guy Savoy — and one of the most elegant and spacious pools in Sin City. Don’t feel like going out? Order champagne using Caesars Palace smartphone app and relax in your own in-room spa tub.

Then, if you must, step off your cloud and partake in all the excitement Vegas has to offer. Start your evening at one of the Strip’s famed bars or clubs, move on to the all-you-can-gamble casino buffet, or take your pick from the myriad of spectacular shows — shows that put the Roman Circus to shame. If all the hustle and bustle is not your cup of tea, wander outside the city gates to the amazing array of natural wonders nearby, such as Red Rock Canyon and the Valley of Fire.

Bottom line: whether you’re the Vegas type or neophyte, amateur gambler or Elvis impersonator, the one who wants to go or has to go, with the Caesars Palace deal, it’s a gamble you are sure to win.

“I Do” Deals

Wedding season means lots of love, joy, and some really great parties. For all the brides and grooms, best men and maids of honor, and the guests, it can also be a wild ride for your bank account.

However, there are ways to save smart without skimping and no shortage of good advice. We love these tips and tricks from experts such as Real Simple, The Knot, WeddingWire, LearnVest, and Pinterest.

We’ve also compiled some of our own great gift and beauty deals to take you through the wedding season circuit with ease:

Gifts from the generous guest for engagement parties, bridal showers, and the big day

The champagne toast is perhaps the most anticipated moment of the day. Help make it possible – and personalized – with elegant engraved toasting flutes.

If the couple is happiest cooking, upgrade their kitchenware with a bamboo cutting board. Customize it with the newlywed’s last name, wedding date, or lyrics from their first dance.

Vino lovers? A personalized bottle of their favorite blend from Miramonte Winery based in Temecula, Calif. could be the way to their heart. Gift it at the bridal shower with a note suggesting they cork it on their first anniversary.

For the wedding party

Thank your maids and men for their support with a token of appreciation that they can don when you walk down the aisle. Our favorite pick for the ladies is a 14K gold diamond initial bracelet – delicate, timeless, and more than 90 percent off retail price.

These Egyptian cotton monogram spa robes are perfect presents for the group who will spend hours getting glammed up, and personalized canvas totes are cute and convenient keepers for everyone’s belongings.

For the groomsmen? A set of engraved cufflinks. This dapper addition to their suit and tie will have them sharp and spiffy in no time flat.

Beauty buys for the ladies

Whether you want curly locks or a sleek hairstyle, this trio of styling irons will give you a salon-worthy look that will last all day.

And the bride doesn’t have to be the only one puckering up – scoop up one of these bright and nourishing lipsticks from Lancome. If you aren’t blushing already, get a flirty flush with makeup sensation from NARS.

Finally, polish off your festive look with this OPI mani/pedi set. From head to toe, you’re ready to go!
